Nottingham Panthers player coach Corey Neilson believes new signing Jordan Fox has all the attributes to be a big success in the Elite League in 2011-12.
Neilson said of the Canadian forward: "He's a great passer can score goals and he's a got a bit of a mean streak.
"He has really good hands, I coached him when he was young and he's played in the East Coast, AHL, and Finland.
"I asked Billy Ryan what he thought about him and he thinks he has the potential to light up our league."
Fox, who was raised in America, will be studying at the University of Derby as part of the unique link-up between the club and the university.
